Lisa Gowing

Sydney based designer Lisa Gowing has spent her career at the forefront of bridal fashion. A graduate of the renowned East Sydney Design School (now UTS) and with also a degree in Visual Arts majoring in Textiles, Lisa Gowing started working in bridal design immediately after completing her studies in 1991. Lisa debuted her signature Couture bridal line in 1997 opening her first LISA GOWING showroom at Pymble in Sydney’s Upper North Shore.

Her collection of exquisite high fashion designs in layered silks and exclusive French and Italian laces immediately changed the face of bridal design in Australia. Trained in the intricacies of Couture dressmaking from a retiring industry expert, Lisa uses only the original Couture techniques mainly forgotten in today’s fashion. Working with beautiful, luxurious fabrics cut in elegant, feminine lines Lisa’s bridal gowns are recognised as the most elite in highend bridal fashion. Each gown is hand made in Australia and constructed in layers of silk and exclusive trims including European laces and crystal or jewel embellishments. Lisa married in 2007 and has 2 young sons.
